DENVER — The crack of the bat and the smell of hot dogs will be back in LoDo this week.
The National Ballpark Museum in Denver is expanding its hours and unveiling some new updates just in time for the start of the Major League Baseball (MLB) season.
Located a half-block from Coors Field in downtown Denver, the National Ballpark Museum will open six days a week beginning Monday, April 4.
The museum said it was forced to reduce its hours during the pandemic and abbreviated MLB seasons. During this time, the museum has expanded, updated exhibits and added a new gift shop, library and conference room.
"Baseball and the museum are all about the fans," said National Ballpark Museum founder, president and curator Bruce Hellerstein.
The museum will be open Monday to Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The Colorado Rockies home opener and opening day is Friday, April 8.
